The Karnataka government is committed to making Mandya district number one in the country, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai. He was speaking at a function organized in connection with the dedication of the 117 km 10-lane Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway built for Rs 8,479 crore and laying the foundation stone for four-lane Mysuru-Kushalanagar Highway by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Mandya on Sunday.

The CM said the double-engine government has been continuously working for the development of Karnataka and released Rs 100 crore for the revival of the closed Mysugar Factory in Mandya City. The ethanol unit will be started in the Mysugar factory this year.

Mandya is India

Bommai said the incumbent government has given priority to VC Canal and Purigali Lift Irrigation schemes. Under the Pradhan Mantri Sadak Yojan, a 152 km road had been constructed in the Mandya district. As many as 2,70,522 farmers benefitted from the Kisan Samman scheme. The Raitha Vidyanidhi scheme has reached 35,000 students and 4.92 lakh Ayushman cards have been distributed in the district. Based on the concept of ‘Mandya is India’, development has been taken up. The 30-year system prevailing in the district will change.

The CM said Rs 20,000 crore has been disbursed among 53 lakh farmers of Karnataka under the Kisan Samman scheme both by the state and union governments. Houses have been sanctioned to 17 lakh people under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Scheme; distributed 1.25 crore Ayushman cards to people; built 6,000 km of National Highway by spending Rs 64,000 crore. The concepts of Jan Kalyan, Rajya Kalyan, and Rashtra Kalyan which are the dreams of Modi are becoming reality.

Expressway to speedy development

The CM said the friendly nations have accepted Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a world leader and the chairmanship of the G-20 has come to India due to Modi’s leadership. The Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway became the reality during the regime of Modi and this project will reduce the density of traffic on this highway. The different stages like the DRP sanction, the release of Rs 4,000 crore additional funds, the foundation stone, the land acquisition process, and the dedication of the highway all happened because of the BJP government.

Union Surface Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, MPs Sumalatha Ambareesh and Pratap Simha, and others were present.
